Sam Rockwell Cast In David Gordon Green's The Sitter
David Gordon Green's Your Highness isn't due out until next April, but the director isn't wasting any time. With the James Franco-Danny McBride medieval comedy done and sitting on a shelf, his next project, The Sitter starring Jonah Hill, is ramping up in pre-production. In recent weeks, the film has signed all three actors that will play the misbehaving children and J.B. Smoove to play one of the drug dealers giving our hero trouble. Now, however, they've added a huge name.
The Wrap reports that Sam Rockwell has signed on to the film as the main antagonist. Over the course of the film, Hill, while working as a babysitter, gets called on by his girlfriend to get her some drugs, but things go horribly wrong and Hill is chased all throughout New York City. Rockwell will play the lead drug dealer working with Smoove to hunt Hill down. The report also says that Ari Graynor, who stars with Rockwell in the upcoming Conviction, has also been cast in the female lead. The movie is currently filming in New York.
More Sam Rockwell is never a bad thing. The man is always engaging and funny when he needs to be, and it will be amazing to see him interact with Smoove. With the talent involved and the great buzz around the script, I already had high hopes for this project, but this only makes it better.
